Another year has gone by, which means it is time for you to start thinking about how to celebrate your anniversary with your partner. As the pressure for a romantic celebration returns, you are suddenly faced with trying to think up new ideas for putting the spark back in your relationship. Not everyone is good at being romantic which makes the holiday more stressful. Instead of stressing yourself out this year, here is a list of romantic anniversary ideas for your partner that will show your commitment and love.
Romance is not just about candles and what goes on when the lights go out. Many women for instance, think it is more romantic if their husbands do the dishes, vacuums the carpets, or puts the kids to bed, thus giving her a break for a change. So for the first romantic act for your partner, go out of your way to make their life easier. Don't just do this on the day of your anniversary. Begin doing this leading up to your special day. Not only will this remove the stress off of your partner, it will make them have more time to take a moment and appreciate just why they married you and you may be rewarded for your efforts. In addition to helping your partner out everyday, start leaving romantic and loving notes or cards placed strategically around the house. When they wake up in the morning and go to brush their teeth, leave a little note telling them how much you love the way they look every morning. Put one on the steering wheel of their car telling them to have a safe trip to work.
The next romantic idea is even more creative. If you have been married for 10 years, ten days before the big day, give them a rose or flower with a special note attached telling them what you are going to do for them that day, whether it be making them dinner, preparing a bubble bath, or picking up the children from school. As the big day approaches make sure you save your bigger ideas for later. Start out small by mowing the lawn. Then as the big day approaches, prepare dinner or whatever you decide to choose. Don't forget you can up the ante if you can afford it. If you can afford a bouquet of flowers each day, instead of just one flower, then make that splurge. If you are not good at cooking, hire a personal chef that can come in your home and teach you guys how to make a fabulous meal together. And if you have children, try to get a babysitter to take the kids out for the night, or send them off to grandmas so you can have some alone time. Don't forget to really rev up the romance by getting a gift basket filled with romantic and steamy candles, lotions, and chocolates. The options are endless, and romance only takes a little thought and effort. Show your partner you really care by taking the time to plan out your anniversary. Don't forget the classic weekend get-aways are timeless romantic endeavors. Let your imagination guide you into the perfect anniversary!
